Whoa. I don’t know if I would pleased or freaked out if someone wanted my profile on their finger, but it’s bound to be impressive no matter what the initial response might be.

You submit a profile photo along with ring size to Fitzsu and we send the information to Germany to be custom made. CONTURA is simple and easy to identify. There is hardly a ring on the market that is more personal, more individual, and more emotional than the CONTURA. Take your loved one’s profile with you everywhere you go- who could want more?”

Round Ring by 22designstudio

Recently DesignBoom was selling some of 22designstudio’s rings, and they sold out in a flash. I was lucky enough to get one, and I’ve got to say I love it.  The rings are made of Stainless and concrete, and the concrete feels surprisingly smooth.

“Drawn freehand by the designer, the circular frame of this ring acts as
the beginning of a dialog between the designer and the person wearing
it. The circular design creates ever-lasting space for communication
and interaction between creator and receiver, designer and customer.”

Shell & Silver Onyx Ring by Mesi Jilly

At first glance I had a rather negative response to this ring- it’s huge, made from a cowrie shell, a little too luxury-in-excess etc., but after looking at it a while I kind of love it, probably for the same reasons. And, yes, you did read that right, it’s $800.

Faceted onyx nestled in a wreath of silver droplets sits atop natural cowrie shell, hollowed to accommodate ring sizes 6-8. Black.

Whole and half sizes 6-8.

Capsule Necklace

“Don’t play with guns. Don’t do drugs. Instead…Toy Me! Milan designer Georgo Phillip Pecenikov (a.k.a. Gogo) comes from a family of traditional high-end jewelry makers, but he uses his knowledge to create edgy, clean and modern pieces that are a world away from the fru-fru of high fashion. This necklace takes the form of a capsule, cast in silver, plated with rhodium (the most expensive and reflective of the precious metals) and gold, and decorated with a crystal. What makes it extra special is that the capsule can be opened, concealing what? A secret message? A painkiller for emergencies? Whatever “your poison.”

100% silver chain.
